Ninja 400 Is Back!! Launched At 4.99 Lac; Gets Better Slipper Clutch

2023 Ninja 400 price is the same as the older, BS4 compliant model. It now comes with BS-VI compliance and few updates…

So, the last time we talked and/or discussed anything about the Kawasaki Ninja 400 was before the year 2020. This is because from April 2020, the BS-VI norms came into effect and that forced Kawasaki to discontinue the 400cc sportbike in India and many other International markets. 

However, now is the time to rejoice for the fans of the Green coloured Japanese bikes as they have at long last updated their Ninja 400 to BS-VI/Euro-5 compliance and have launched the bike in India today (24th June).

These two will be the closest rivals to each other in terms of power figures and design language, but the difference of nearly Rs. 1.85 Lakh  will be a big factor during the final buying-decision of these bikes.
